It's difficult to write about plays with PEPLUM stories/themes as the majority of them haven't been preserved for posterity on film or video. Here are just a few examples/photos of PEP plays.

Cool photos.

Precious archeological finds!
Don't remember if Ludmila Tcherina's creations as Salome performing the Dance of the Seven Veils (1963, 1972) were real stage ones or direct to TV?

Good question. I have to check it out. But wasn't Ludmila a bit to old to play Salome, even on stage, in 1972?
